An actual Butternut Crunch Doughnut and Nisu Bread from Brothers’ Brew Coffee Shop Rockport. The Butternut was still warm. BB has to start cranking more of these puppies out. They run out by 9AM most mornings but if you go here Saturday early you can nail one.
Mann’s Cherry Pie from Mann Orchards in Methuen. Looked too good to pass up.
Two Bell Jars of Ma’s Tomato Marmalade, one hot, one sweet. Taste test said these were going in the basket. 2 Cross Street Gloucester. This place also had some awesome pickles and told us where to get fresh turmeric to make our own.
Sasquatch Smokehouse Smoked Mussels. Holy Cow, taste test said these had to go and next Saturday the smoked Cod will have to go too. 44 Whittemore Street Gloucester.
Porterhouse Steak from Seaview Farm 38 South Street. I’ll get back to you on the taste test but local grass fed beef? A big Rubber Thumbs up. [added edit] Wow, the porterhouse was cooked perfectly by Chef Ted (son) and was very tasty.
What we did not get: Twinlights Soda. Missed it. Fresh made pasta: we were going to circle back but forgot. That’s OK. This is going to be a Saturday 9AM (parking available then) ritual during the summer. And I will hunt some of these places down in the near future.
